"A Chess game is divided into three stages: the first, when you hope you have the advantage, the second when you believe you have an advantage, and the third... when you know you're going to lose" - Savielly Tartakower

   Sep-21-23 Gligoric vs E Bakonyi, 1948
EphemeralAdvantage: <5.Bd2! Boris Avrukh> Or 5. Bg3 Bg7 6. h4! and white is close to winning
   Sep-13-23 Jeroen Piket
EphemeralAdvantage: Piket's games against the King's Indian are always very nice. Probably his most famous KID game is sadly his loss against Kasparov in 1989 ( Piket vs Kasparov, 1989 ) but few remember that Piket played a crucial role in Kasparov not playing the King's Indian in the 2000s.
   Sep-01-23 Geller vs Karpov, 1976 (replies)
EphemeralAdvantage: Now, that's a nice title for a game! Geller's choice of 3. Nc3 worked nicely. Karpov played the french very rarely and would have doubtless prepared for 3. Nd2 since this was Efim's main weapon. His versatility as a player always astonished me. On another note, Geller ...
   Jul-22-23 Karjakin vs Carlsen, 2014
EphemeralAdvantage: It is very interesting to see that Carlsen was a Dragon aficionado in his earlier years. It is not an opening one associates with his style. The magic of youth!
   Feb-12-23 P L Flynn vs C Barnett, 2003 (replies)
EphemeralAdvantage: <Or maybe playing a large number of correspondence games at the same time, the player accidently sent a move intended for one of his other games.> That seems to me to be the most plausible theory.
   Feb-03-23 Nepomniachtchi vs Svidler, 2014
EphemeralAdvantage: The 10. Nb5 sac is incredible and absolutely winning for White. After 12. ... Qd6 as proposed the point is not that White is immediately winning but the Black is unable to develop his remaining pieces. Svidler would basically be in Zugszwang! For example 12. ... Qd6 13. ...
   Feb-03-23 H Van de Wynkele vs S Semina, 1997
EphemeralAdvantage: White probably was aiming for a Muzio but black destroyed his hopes and dreams with 4. ... Bg7. In his book "The King's Gambit" GM John Shaw remarks "I will offer only a passing flavor of the Muzio for two reasons: White should not play 4. Bc4 and Black should not reply ...
   Jan-31-23 Karpov vs Taimanov, 1972
EphemeralAdvantage: This is the last example in the 1987 book "How to play the Sicilian" by Daniel Levy and Kevin O' Connell. They primarily discuss the clamping effect the pawn on c5 (12. c5) has on Black's position. It is interesting how 15. ... d5, normally the desirable move is such ...
   Jan-22-23 Giri vs Carlsen, 2023 (replies)
EphemeralAdvantage: <SChesshevsky> Yeah you are absolutely right even after the "correct" ... g6 Black is reduced to a mere bystander while white gets to have all the fun. Not a typical Carlsen game for sure. So a more general question would be: why would Carlsen play the QID in the ...
   Jan-21-23 S From vs Madsen, 1981 (replies)
EphemeralAdvantage: So ephemeral they were, in fact, that they didn't even last three moves!
